This spring Darjeeling is made in the Gomtee tea estate, in the Kurseong valley. The first harvests of the year develop unparalleled freshness and aromatic complexity.
Its intense vegetal notes develop against an astringent texture which gives the flavours a long finish. A powerful tea.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
